Automatic Writing with Gabriel Bump

Automatic Writing with Gabriel Bump (hybrid)

In this one-hour workshop, we’ll fall into our thoughts. Students will try to write without pausing, without second-guessing themselves. We’ll get lost in our writing, find a trance-like state, stumble, maybe, onto something revelatory. For inspiration, we’ll read excerpts from Ducks, Newburyport.

This workshop is FREE, aimed at young students aged 12–18.

ACCESSIBILITY NOTE: If you have any questions/issues accessing any of these opportunities, please let us know and we will work with you to make sure you can participate.
